hippety hoppety easter’s on it’s way…

i went shopping with my mil this weekend and the topic of easter came up. we haven’t done easter together in a few years as eveyone in the family has had seperate plans. this actually worked out pretty well for us since most of these whole extended family gatherings end up being really annoying and obnoxious.

anywho, mil suggested a mid afternoon dinner at her house with just hubby, me, his parents and both grandmothers. after a bit of thought, hubby and i thought it would be nice to do brunch at our house instead.

i’m actually looking forward to doing brunch as it has been forever since i have entertained and it’s something i really like doing. besides, mil is a freaking disaster on even small family gatherings. she goes into this crazy freak out mode and is usually drunk before we even eat. plus, i’m really not a fan of her “cooking”. so, this way, i can be in charge and have a nice, pleasant afternoon.

i called my girlfriend who does amazing floral arrangements and put in my order so my house will look pretty. i have researched some tasty brunch recipes for something a little bit different. and i will get out my china, crystal and sterling for that extra special touch. and i have all day saturday to prepare everything so i won’t have to be stressed on sunday morning.

what do you have planned for easter?

    we’ll be with my ILs. Lunch at their house after church. it was supposed to be MIL, FIL, us and B’s bro and his wife…but the bro and wife decided not to come from CO. Bummer, it will just be us w/ the ILs, eating ham…which is not exactly my favorite. Oh well. Next Easter will be WAY different. For you, too! =)

    ugh. i really don’t like ham and that’s all my mil likes to make. she also makes this really gross egg and jalapeño dish. but like i’ve said before, she really doesn’t know how to cook very well.

    i’m not sure how different next year will be as that’s pretty far away. we’re really good at saying no to family and doing our own thing, which is really good.

    a few years ago we started our own christmas eve tradition where we spend it by ourselves without any other family. it took a while for hubby’s mother to get used to it, but we were firm about how it was going to be.

    My plan for Easter? Sleeping in and having a box of Peeps. And that’s it.
